Thanks again CCMC #244

Another colour challenge over at Create With Connie and Mary using this lovely colour palette:


Daffodil Delight and Marina Mist I have a plenty, but not quite the same can be said of Not Quite Navy (see what I did?!) only the ink pad. So, taking all that into account, here’s what I came up with:


I used Not Quite Navy to stamp the toadstool image and to ink the edges of all the papers. I also used a waterbrush to apply colour directly to colour in parts of the image.


My Stampin’ Up! supplies are also lacking in ribbon, so I used strips of designer paper and card instead. I had a slightly giddy moment when I remembered that I DID have some Designer Buttons in Brights so popped on one in Daffodil Delight as the finishing touch.


Now I’m very excited because I’ve just had word saying my order from Stampin’ Up! will be delivered tomorrow. I shall be home alone to received it and enjoy it!!

Making a man card

I do find man cards tricky to make. However, Stampin’ Up! have lots of lovely goodies that make the job a little easier and I am very pleased with my first SU card for a man.

P1030343The bunting is cut free-hand. Using the Polka Dot Parade in Marina Mist I’ve punched out 1″ squares, folded them in half to find the midway point and then cut them into triangles. The ribbons are 3/4″ strips which I’ve cut into. All the edges have been inked. I used a hot glue to stick the flags down and then added little blue buttons from my stash in between each piece.


I stamped the R onto Whisper white and punched it out using the 1″ circle punch. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to mount it onto the Scallop circle, punched from Sahara Sand, and then used more dimensionals to apply this to a square of Polka Dot Parade. All the pieces, including the bunting were edged with Early Espresso.
